Quitting Facebook will make you happier

In this clip Dr. Gournelos discusses a recent study about quitting Facebook, which echoes earlier findings regarding how social media use makes us unhappy. While it also showed that users were less informed of current events, it didn’t engage whether or not their knowledge was credible or accurate, but instead whether or not they were aware of events covered widely in the popular press. The lesson? Either stop using social media, or take extended breaks from it occasionally. You’ll be better off not just that month, but also have some much needed distance afterwards!
